In who many Americans see as a power-hungry former politician, who still longs to be the president, former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton is back and is still upset about her 2016 loss to former President Donald J.Trump.
“In this lesson, I’m going to face one of my most public defeats head-on by sharing with you the speech I had hoped to deliver if I had won the 2016 election,” the former secretary of state said in an excerpt of her upcoming MasterClass lesson shared with “Sunday TODAY with Willie Geist” as part of an interview that will air on Sunday.
Clinton read from her 2016 Presidential “victory speech” during the interview which she would have been given on election night if she had won and not lost to former President Donald Trump.
In the video, Clinton becomes visibly emotional as she starts to talk about her mother, who faced enormous hardships growing up and died in 2011.

“You may have heard me talk about her difficult childhood. She was abandoned by her parents when she was just 8 years old,” she said. “They put her on a train to California where she was mistreated by her parents and ended up out on her own, working as a housemaid.”

Clinton said she would have also addressed becoming the first female president and its significance to the country. She argued in the speech that her victory would have changed the “face” of American democracy forever.
“I’ve met little boys and girls who didn’t understand why a woman has never been president before,” she said. “This is a victory for all Americans. Men and women. Boys and girls. Because as our country has proven once again when there are no ceilings, the sky’s the limit.”
“Sometimes I think about her on that train,” Clinton said. “I dream of going up to her, and sitting down next to her, taking her into my arms, and saying, ‘Look at me. Listen to me. You will survive. You will have a good family of your own. And three children. And as hard as it might be to imagine, your daughter will grow up and become the president of the United States.”
To those who have monitored the nefarious activities of the Clinton family, the fact that Hillary still gets choked up 5 years after losing, confirms she is still upset over not achieving the main prize she set her heart on as a disciple of Saul Alinsky in college, The Presidency Of The United States.
